Default Re: feather headbands?

I agree with mommyto_ydj--use E6000, not hot glue. I've found that the hot glue gets too goopy and ruins the feathers. Also, what's nice about the E6000 is that you have some time to fiddle with the exact placement and get the feather exactly where you want it. Generally, I just apply it to the stalk in the center of the feather to ensure none of the glue shows through on the main part of the feather. And to secure the feather further, I use a felt circle on the back of the headband so that the feather is sandwiched between the circle and the headband.
